Glad to see you back.

I recently warped some 3/8” x 12” flat bars pretty good in the middle of he night and used an idea in my head that I had seen you post years ago. Bottle jack and chain you used as a clamp back in 2013: https://www.shopfloortalk.com/forums...ht=Bottle+jack

My piece of chain wasn’t long enough to work properly and hook back onto itself but the plates turned out straight in no time.

KOO I thought of you just yesterday. I saw a Bombardier Muskeg for sale and googled it. Your webpage showing yours came up! This one was in CA but they only wanted $3500 but said the flat head Dodge needed rebuilt. Theirs had a winch on the front, but otherwise looked pretty close to yours.

welcome back,
OleDog

sounds like a good deal but at my age I have started to limit my projects.

Welcome back Joey. It's good to hear from you again.
I noted you repeated the phrase "at my age" and I can say welcome to the grey pack, it doesn't get easier and things don't heal any faster.
